Thirteen months ago I started the journey of this blog. Yesterday, FUMSI featured an article I wrote about my first year of blogging. FUMSI is an acronym for “Find,” “Use,” “Manage,” “Share,” “Information.” FUMSI is a resource that helps professionals with all aspects of dealing with information. Some of FUMSI’s content is free to the public. Other material, like Jill Hurst-Wahl’s excellent Federated Search Report and Tool Kit, which I reviewed in this blog, are for sale.

On the blog’s birthday, I provided some blog stats. In the FUMSI article, I reminisce. I share myself in a way that I don’t normally do on this blog.

No, I’m not going to write a “making of” article. Read the article. Enjoy it. And, Happy New Year!

    What a good idea to sponsor an essay contest. That would spur those who had been thinking about writing for the Information Today publications (which are indeed invaluable) to try that (a very rewarding experience, I found) and to clarify their own thinking about federated search. Good for you!

    This is quite true, “…the blog has evolved into a valuable educational resource for the library community and for others interested in the technology…”

    Indeed, I’ve learned a lot more about you Sol as a result of this Fumsi article! Very interesting.

    I appreciate your acknowledgment in the article and look forward to continuing our mutual efforts. I continued to be impressed by your work and look forward to seeing more.

    Finally, let me congratulate you on the birthday of your blog.
